Non-scientific Interests: music, history

Brief bio: I started my Ph.D. in Institute of Botany, the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2010. During that time, I studied the involvement of calcium-modulated MAPK signaling in chloroplast-to-nucleus communication, which was supervised by Lixin Zhang and Jean-David Rochaix. I joined Jonathan Jones’s lab as a postdoc in 2016 on an ERC-funded project to investigate the fundamental question of how plant intracellular immune receptors detect pathogen effectors and then activate defence, using the Arabidopsis RRS1/RPS4 paired NLRs as a model. I will soon start as a tenure-track assistant professor in the Department of Plant Pathology, China Agricultural University. In the future, I will carry on some unfinished postdoc projects and expand my research from the model organism Arabidopsis to crops such as investigating rice blast resistance.



现任职位:The Sainsbury Laboratory 博士后



个人简介:我的科研生涯开始于2010年在中国科学院植物研究所攻读博士学位,当时在张立新和Jean-David Rochaix两位老师的指导下从事MAPK级联信号系统介导拟南芥质体信号转导的分子机理研究。2016年博士毕业后我有幸加入The Sainsbury Laboratory 的Jonathan Jones实验室从事博士后研究,博士后期间以拟南芥RRS1/RPS4这对NLR免疫受体复合物为模型研究植物胞内免疫受体如何识别病原微生物效应蛋白然后激活防卫反应的分子机制。我即将加入中国农业大学植物病理系组建自己的科研团队,未来将以拟南芥和水稻作为研究材料进行植物免疫的分子机理及其信号转导途径研究。
